Snow falling on Grass Valley Tuesday morning isn’t expected to last, as ground temperatures are too high for it to stick.

Grass Valley is on the outer fringes of a snow storm moving through the area. Snowfall is expected to taper off late this morning or early afternoon, said Nathan Owen, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

“There might be some lingering showers,” Owen added. “The heaviest snowfall has already passed.”

Today is expected to be partly sunny with highs around 43. Lows will drop to 32 tonight.

There’s an 80 percent chance of rain Wednesday. Highs will climb to 47 and lows will dip to 36 that night.

Thursday is forecast to be mostly sunny with highs around 51. It’ll be partly cloudy that night, with lows dropping to 36.
